What an amazing experience it was photographing Diamond and Glamour Plus ranges for Roz la Kelin's 2015 Lookbook. Working with such talented artists including Chanele Rose Flowers, Make up Mode and The Bridal Hair Co was really something special. I couldn't wait to share a sneak peak today as Roz la Kelin are in New York for Bridal Fashion Week preparing to launch their 2015 collection right now. I can tell you i've seen it up close and the whole Diamond and Glamour Plus ranges are simply stunning. The most intricate beadwork, lovely lace, gorgeous sleeves, beautiful skirts and (my favourite) there are so many incredible backs to these dresses. I can't wait to share the rest of my Roz la Kelin photographs with you soon.

For something different I took along my Contax film camera and shot off a roll of Ilford Black and White film - I love this look when capturing our Love Note Creatives! If you haven't seen Aaron's work before he loves to sketch fashion icons and blog stars such as Margaret Zhang and you can see the rest of his work on Instagram.

Meaghan, originally from Australia was living in London and flew to Cape Town for a friends wedding. There she met Llewellyn and they were inseparable for the rest of her trip. Little did she know that in a few short years she would be living in South Africa with her husband! It made sense to hold their wedding at the Santhiya Resort and Spa in Koh Phangan, Thailand, where friends from around the world could join them.  The heavens opened and it poured with rain and storms all day.. until half an hour before our beautiful bride walked down the aisle. And then the sun made her appearance right when we were taking photos before dinner. After, we ate delicious Thai food and danced on the beach until the early hours of the morning, rain in our hair and sand between our toes. Relaxed and just perfect for this beautiful international couple.

Angelina and Matthew are some of my oldest and dearest friends and as anyone who has lived overseas knows, sometimes you miss things back home.. important things like when your best friends start growing their family. So you can imagine how special it was for me to be able to spend the day not only getting to know their little ones Giovanni and Stefani, but to be able to capture on film the love between them and the strong family values that they both bring from their Italian and Greek roots. Lina and I attended school together and I clearly remember the summer holiday when she met Matt and giggling together trying to figure out if he liked her and if she liked him. To see them now as a family of four is one of the most wonderful and surreal things.

And their session was featured on the lovely 100 Layer Cake-let blog!

Make Up Mode Creatives - Advanced Fashion - Sydney

 

It was a wonderful experience to be involved in this shoot with one of my favourite creatives, Make-up Mode and the graduates of their Advanced Fashion Course. The Creatives : Elizabeth Mizyed, Shelley Lia, Christina Pirrello and Rebecca Suarez - Camacho. Didn't they come up with some great looks? And the models were just wonderful, luckily it was still warm enough in Sydney autumn to jump in the pool! Many thanks to Sue Markovic and Bec DeMurtas for being such lovely assistants and Eberhardt Jewellery for supplying us with the stunning pieces you see here. If you are thinking about studying the artistry of makeup application have a look at Make-up Mode's classes, there are several options available and Sue is an amazing and generous teacher. I love working with her and her students as they make my photo processing life so simple. The results speak for themselves!

Autumn Family Shoot - Leura - Blue Mountains - New South Wales

A little family shoot that took place in Autumn (yes, I am behind in my blogging!) with some dear friends of mine celebrating 20 years of marriage with some family photos. What a beautiful memory this day was; Leura is a special place for them and Autumn is their favourite season and when they were married all those years ago. We had an amazing day at the edge of the Blue Mountains with clear skies and sunny weather, not too cold at all. Weather like this makes me so happy to be back home in Australia, we have the most amazing winters. It's beautiful to see how my lovely families interact with each other and to capture it on film for them, I just love it. These photos were a mixture of Canon digital and my Mamiya 645 using Fuji film and processed at Richard Photo Lab. I was so happy with the film processed here I have started to use it more and more in these family shoots. I have some fabulous families booked in for Spring photo sessions in Sydney so looking forward to showing you these soon!

A South of France Wedding - Ingrid & Norman - Bonneville - Rhône-Alpes - France

Here's a story of a French Italian girl named Ingrid. She liked to travel, and we became friends when she was in Sydney years ago. Fast forward a few years and she's in Mexico at the wedding of her brother and decides to stay a while. Here she meets Norman, an American born Mexican British boy, who tries to persuade her to stay and see more of him. But Ingrid decides she wants to travel, and that's that. A few months later Ingrid comes to visit me while I am living in London.. no need for me to pick her up from the airport, someone named Norman has come to meet her ....

So what happens next? A 24 hour party in Bonneville, a small pretty town near the Alps bringing people from all corners of the earth to celebrate their wedding. A surprise Mariachi band was to be expected...

Sneak Preview: Family Shoot - Autumn in Leura - Blue Mountains - Sydney

 

Autumn in Sydney.

The sun shines, the sky is blue and the air gets a little cooler, much less humid than the days that came before.

20 years ago Elvis and Cinzia chose this time to marry, as it’s their favourite season. Last weekend we celebrated their 20 years of marriage by taking some autumn family photos [I cannot believe they could possibly be old enough to have been married that long but friends that went to their wedding assured me it was true] now with their two very lovely children in tow. Taking advantage of being so close to the wonderful town of Leura in the Blue Mountains, we were rewarded with the kind of stunning autumn day ex-pats dream about…here is a little sneak preview of the photos I can’t wait to show you them all!

A Weekend In Marrakesh - Morocco

 48 hours in Marrakesh. It's amazing how much you can fit in a weekend when you feel completely transported to another world. From a very snowy London we almost didn't make the short flight to our hot and sunny destination (but that's a whole other long story....). Before we knew it we were being driven in the oldest taxi I've ever experienced to the completely different sound of Arabic music playing through the radio and scenery made up of pinks and oranges. A completely beautiful mess, an assault on the senses. Orange juice, eat here miss, best food here, buy a lamp, I'll show you some nice rugs, snake charmer, take some rosemary to cover the smell of the tannery, blazing sunsets, friendly children, where is that music coming from?, pigeon pie, serenity, wall courtyard, little finches, sweet mint tea, small cakes, roses, back out into the market, how do we find our way out?, french, arabic, english, spices, bargaining, pink shadows, sunset again, time to return, all over too soon. Words feel empty when describing Marrakesh and so, I will write no more.
